Summer Member Mission:
Re-purposing the old Berks Real Estate Weekly Boxes into Children Book Shares with Teachers in the Parks!

If you have been following us on Facebook, you may have seen that our Do It Local Movement has been accomplishing a lot more than just raising funds and saving you money!   Most recently we received a donation from the Berks-Reading Realtors Association of  30+ Newspaper Outdoor Boxes for our Book Share collaboration with  Teachers in the Parks!  Read more about this collaboration HERE or join us at Weaver's Orchard during Read N' Pick Story Time to pick up a FREE Children's Book as well as information about our Book Share on Wednesday July 24th or Monday August 5th. 

We started with recycled card board boxes and baskets a few weeks ago - then we paused our efforts so we could focus on cleaning up these awesome outdoor boxes to take our Book Share to the next level! 

A HUGE Thank you to:
  • Empire Surplus for storing our boxes! Empire Surplus offers Do It Local members 20% off one item in their massive showroom off 183 behind the Hitching Post.  Shop Empire for quality building supplies, furniture, and home decor at deep deep discounts! Break out your app and save EXTRA BIG at Empire on your next home project! 
  • HomeCare Solution for helping us power-wash the boxes!  Homecare Solution is all about saving their clients money while providing the quality residential and commerical cleaning services. Contact Homecare today for  indoor cleaning, power washing, carpet cleaning, mattress cleaning, and so much more! Call (484) 509-7197 to schedule your free estimate & tell Branden THANK YOU  for supporting Do It Local & Teachers in the Parks! 
  • Our community of members for offering to help decorate the boxes after they are cleaned!  Join our Facebook Group for the Book Share to stay up to date on when & where boxes are set up in the community: Berks County Readers - FREE Books!
  • And of course the Reading-Berks Association of Realtors for donating these awesome outdoor boxes! 
All we need to complete this project are:
  1. Custom large print stickers
  2. A moving company to help us distribute the boxes
  3. More donated Children's Books to fill the boxes
  If you know someone that would like to help us complete this mission - please have them email me directly:
